The BRITISH HAIKU SOCIETY
is bringing a Haiku Day to Broadstairs
21st June 2008
Felicity Brookesmith will host the Day
10 am - 4pm
in the Bradstowe Room
the Royal Albion Hotel
6-12 Albion Street
BHS hopes to start a haiku poetry group in the area. The Day's events include :
- a talk by Dr Martin Lucas (Editor of haiku journal Presence) about haiku
with reference to Stepping Stones:a way into haiku (the recent BHS publication)
- a workshop facilitated by Annie Bachini (BHS President) that will incorporate Lunchtime observations and a kukai and writing your own haiku
- readings by Felicity Brookesmith
from a selection of her haiku inspired by the local environment
Lunch can be purchased at the hotel or in one of the many eateries nearby, or you may like to bring your own to eat on the beach!
To reach the ROYAL ALBION HOTEL, walking/driving from the train station, go straight down the High Street to the end, turn left into Albion Street, and you'll see the hotel immediately in front of you over on the right. There are paying-car-parking spaces behind the station; on the High Street; and in the car-park at the end of Albion Street in Nelson Place.
Places are limited, so please let Felicity know as soon as possible if you are planning to be there/would like more details.
Thankyou! Looking forward to your reply at
